Here is where the magic happens: the REC board turns bedroom guitarists into real pros. Remember - it doesn't matter if you fail or pass, as long as you keep posting REC takes you will progress.

The entries will be graded by a number of instructors. After grading, members will be accredited with the appropriate points if they pass, and adjustments will be made to their REC level.
Passing grade is 6 or higher.

Hi Kalidia! Great to see you working hard!

This lesson has a 3 different things that you are working at the same time so it's very effective lesson. It covers theory applied to guitar, it's a very good timing exercise and also a great training for the left hand since some of the shapes are tricky and you have to change them relatively fast if you want to keep tempo flowing. The theory aspect depends on you, if you focus on understanding the theory behind each chord and where and how you can apply them. The second, timing, is close but there are still some moments where you are not playing the arpeggios tight with the tempo, so keep on working on it. The third thing, chord shapes, is connected to the previous one, I think that you are comfortable with most of the shapes but there are a few giving issues so focus on them and keep on practicing.

This take deserves a 9 just because the little timing issues, but be sure to get the most of this one since it's covering a lot of helpful stuff that can take your compositions to a new level.

Keep on the good job. smile.gif

Hey mate!

Gabi has pointed out some very important aspects in his comments and I would like to add that a few more chord based lessons will only take your knowledge even further up the hill smile.gif Please let me know if you like these:


They are focusing on shapes which are not so comfortable and implicitly on timing, because you have to change them smile.gif Otherwise, I have nothing else to add here aside from what the guys have already said.

Keep rocking!
